About the document

The Western Grey Kangaroo Management Plan for Western Australia 2003-2007 is a management strategy for the Western grey kangaroo (Macropus fuliginosus) in Western Australia. A management plan for Western grey kangaroos has been in place in Western Australia since 1973 [see Shugg and Prince (1973), Crook and Prince (1984), McNamara and Prince (1986), and the 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991,1992-1994, 1995-1997 and the 1998-2002 Management Programs for the Western grey kangaroo in Western Australia (unpublished)].

There are many stakeholders in the management and conservation of macropod species within Western Australia. The Government of Western Australia makes significant contributions to both the conservation and management of macropods through the maintenance of protected areas and targeted conservation management projects. The commercial kangaroo industry and the general community are also stakeholders in kangaroo management. Every member of the community has the potential to benefit from the effective conservation and management of macropod species in Western Australia. Aboriginal people have a unique social and cultural interest in kangaroos. This document works within the boundaries of the Native Title Act 1983 and section 23C(1) of the Western Australian Wildlife Conservation Act 1950. This management plan and the management strategies described in it are designed to integrate with the natural resource management (NRM) strategies of the Western Australian government.
